Description

Mental Health Series - Healing Power of Art Therapy

What is art therapy and how does it help people? Learn about art therapy vs. art-making. We will explore the developmental stages of art-making, tools to use art for stress reduction and how art builds a bridge from visual to verbal expression by speaking in the language of imagery.

Join us for an art experiential for hands-on exploration of an art therapy process.

No prior art experience is necessary.
